myDevices Cayenne IoT Drag and Drop - made EASY



What if setting up a Raspberry Pi for IoT projects can be achieved in a matter of minutes.
That connecting your Pi to an online or mobile dashboard, with a breadboard ready to connect motion sensors, lights and relays can be completed shortly after that?

You'd probably think its impossible.


Sure, you can go the long way and write an app, read tons of documentation, take the time to learn new programming languages, code, code and code some more.
But why invest so much time in prepping your project, when you can be up and running in a fraction of a time and building your automation projects in minutes.?

I tried this out and in no time at all I was controlling a Raspberry Pi with a LED, Buzzer and a Switch all connected to a remote Pi from my IPAD.


So how is this all possible?
myDevices IoT Project Builder called Cayenne.

Cayenne was created for developers and makers eager to quickly build and prototype amazing projects with their Raspberry Pis. With your free Cayenne account, you can create an unlimited amount of projects. You also have full-fledged IoT maker capabilities so you can remotely control sensors, motors, actuators, including GPIO boards. Unlimited storage of data collected by your hardware components, triggers and alerts that provide the tools you need for automation and the ability to set up threshold alerts. You can create custom dashboards to showcase your project with drag and drop widgets that are also fully customizable.

Users can install the Cayenne software to any Raspberry Pi device connected to a network, and then connect to the app. After installing Cayenne to a Raspberry Pi device, users can from the app view devices on the customizable dashboard and send commands, including configuring triggers, setting up threshold alerts, restarting and shutting down.

The IoT has largely been an arena for the large enterprises and industrial businesses of the world. However, myDevices said that it expects smaller businesses – those interested in testing IoT functions but not prepared to heavily invest – to experiment and find some suitable use cases.

Cayenne accounts are free to sign up for, and there's no cap on the amount of apps users can make.
